Kenya: January ’08

06 Jan

It is not very often that you can close your eyes and picture yourself sitting and worshiping at the throne of Christ. But, on this day, it was very easy to imagine. Our team had the opportunity to visit and participate at several local churches as well as fellowship at the home of Pastor Fred.

The first church we visited was Pastor Fred’s located at the Mirindi compound. Several of us volunteered to teach Sunday school in the morning, each at a different age group. When helping with the children’s group, I learned that the turnout was a little larger than normal (with over 200 children attending). Other classes that were taught included youth, women and men. After Sunday school, we attended the worship service where Craig preached a sermon.

Quickly after finishing the sermon, we traveled to another local church. I especially enjoyed the worship through singing at this church. The people’s love of God was so evident and it was great to witness pure worship without any inhibitions. Craig again preached a sermon at this church.

Another enjoyable part of this day was the time spent at Pastor Fred’s home, where we ate lunch and fellowshipped with many of the church leaders and members. We were also able to meet Pastor Fred’s family. Spending time here felt like we were at home, which I guess is only natural when you are with other believers in the body of Christ.

After lunch we visited Pastor Alan’s church, where Craig again planned to preach. Even though most of the team didn’t stay for the entire service, we were able to witness something exciting: this congregation was in the process of building a new building to accommodate their recent growth. It was such a blessing to see how the Lord is working in Migori!

Having completed 3 of the 5 days of the medical clinic, most of the team took the rest of the afternoon to relax and prepare for the remaining days. Reflecting back on this day, I most enjoyed participating in the unique worship and sharing in a small glimpse of what eternity holds.
